The Book of Unwritten Tales: The Critter Chronicles by gremlin

GameBoomers
15 January 2013
  • Excerpt: What is it? It seems that games journalists are constantly bemoaning the saturation of the games market with sequels: publishers know what has worked in the past, so assume that the same will work in the future. Okay, a reasonably fair, but boring, assumption.
